Do you have a favourite New Forest walk? Spring time in the New Forest is just magical as the trees turn slowly from brown to green and then a little later a magic sea of purple bluebells appears!

Ivy Wood, between Brockenhurst and Beaulieu has it all! The Lymington river slowly meanders through the forest here and fallen trees create makeshift bridges. From here you can walk to the famous Roydon Woods where the bluebells are always spectacular come late Spring.
The dappled shade on the riverside provides the perfect place for a picnic and you may even find a few rope swings along the way!
This walk is ideally located between Beaulieu and Brockenhurst where you may choose to stay either at the Montague Arms in Beaulieu or the Balmer Lawn Hotel in Brockenhurst, and be sure to pop into The Pig for the ultimate local dining experience - located almost opposite Ivy Wood car park! The car park is just off Balmer Lawn Road (B3055)and is fairly small so can get busy.
